Adulthood: It's Not Just For Adults Anymore
My friend Ruth -- whose daughter Ariela reminded us that our naughty pasts are always with us -- has another daughter, seven year old Dvorah. Apparently she represents our other, mature side.
"Last week I was driving Dvorah somewhere and drinking my coffee and making loud annoying slurpy noises, just cause she was being so quiet and I felt like it.
Finally Dvorah says 'WHY are you making those noises?'
Me: 'Cause I felt like it. Sometimes mommies need attention too.'
Dvorah (drily): 'I noticed.' (resumes looking out window)"
Today's fragrance: Ormonde Jayne Ta'if with just a bit of Sage Machado Amber AND, thanks to Kate, a whif of Serge Lutens Ambre Sultan! woohoo!
